Tom Sizemore has been called many things. Brilliant. Brutal. Fiercely talented. Angry. Drug addicted. In reality, he’s all of them. He’s a survivor of the Detroit ghetto, the forty-eight-year-old father of twin boys, and a veteran of dozens of movies. He’s also now sober, after his addiction took his life as far down, arguably, as any human being could go. Through screen-stealing performances in the 1990s movies True Romanceand Natural Born Killers, Sizemore was so in demand that even when it was widely known that he had a drug problem, directors like Steven Spielberg were offering him roles. But he is also the man who went from romancing Elizabeth Hurley and Sharon Stone to being accused of domestic violence by the world’s most famous madam, who moved from a Beverly Hills mansion to a solitary confinement cell at Chino State Prison and later a desolate, abandoned cabin. This is a harrowing journey into the heart of addiction. It’s one man’s look at a particular moment in entertainment history-a window into the drug-fueled spotlight that killed River Phoenix and sent Robert Downey, Jr., to jail.
